NMC Canticum Novum

NMC's Canticum Novum, meaning "new song," is the premier vocal ensemble in Northern Lower Michigan. Canticum Novum is an auditioned-only ensemble — please see below for audition information. Canticum Novum has several performance cycles throughout the year, with an emphasis on performances in the Fall and late Spring. Because of the challenging literature and the abbreviated rehearsal schedule, only singers with good reading skills should inquire. Registration fees for the 2019–2020 season are $150.
